Sams NY System Reopens! Sat, 03/15/08 2:39 PM (permalink)
You've heard it- I know some have been waiting with bated breath (especially Buffetbuster!) Are they? Aren't they? What's taking so long???

Well, Sam's NY System in Warwick RI finally reopened for business as of March 12th after a fire rendered the building uninhabitable on July 4, 2006, eventually the building was leveled..

Previously written about by the Sterns both in their books as well as the restaurant section of the forum. I stopped by to see the progress after my lunch of Red Chowder and Two Stuffies at Buttonwoods Fish and Chips and they were open and busy!

I couldn't help myself, I had ONE hot weiner with everything to go. It's just as good as I remembered, however I still think Olneyville NY System is the best!!

    I'd comment on the unsanitary arms, but that would just start another fight.

      Actually this time it was the unsanitary arm of a female...
      However I just had one- so no weiners "up the arm" for me!

          Man, this was a long time coming! What took so long? Well, this is obviously good news for me and other Roadfooders, but I do wonder if this is good for Wanderingjew, considering he is eating much healthier these days and he only lives five minutes from Sam's.

            Do you think that if one puts some bee pollen or bean sprouts on the hot dog, it will then be healthful?

              While I've had some excellent NY systems at Sams, my vote for the best is by far Wein-o-rama in Cranston. Never a reason to go elsewhere. Two all the way, small fry and a medium coffee milk for me. I find Olneyville's to be inconsistent where the bun is typically too soggy from their steaming process.

              Recently rediscovered Buttonwoods Fish & Chips. Went there several times about 3-5 years ago, but when a new owner switched to frozen fries, we stopped going there until about two months ago. Tried their NY systems - quite good and were very pleased to see they again have the fresh cut fries - quite excellent. They also occasionally have dynamites as a special. Guess I won't have to wait for Octoberfest in Woonsocket for an occasional Dynamite. Fried shrimp were also quite excellent (and well priced) at Buttonwoods. Breakfast specials are also worth a stop.
